a. Disruption of income streams
b. Mental wellness & health due to a sudden shift in daily routines
NOCK has developed a concerted program to support athletes:
i. NOCK is in advanced talks with the Ministry of Sports to provide financial support to athletes through the Sports Fund and corporate sponsors
ii. NOCK has rolled out weekly webinars where professionals in mental wellness of athletes and coaches will provide social support to athletes remotely. The Webinars will start from the first week of May 2020.
